Rated 5 out of 5 by Professora What's Not to Like?
A perfect, easy sun dress for the last, hottest part of summer. The print is pretty--neither too young nor too granny. With no zippers or buttons it is easy-on and out the door. Despite the print, the dress can really work as a blank canvas--looks great with high-heeled sandals and a light cotton, three-quarter sleeve sweater (if you don't like to expose your bare arms), or more casual with a hoodie and, as featured, some tennis shoes, or worn with a belt over the elastic waist and a nice choker. What I love best about this dress is that it gives coverage while still offering the benefits of a sundress--it is lined and the length is to the bottom of my knees which helps to balance the fullness of the skirt. No worries about unintended exposure of what lies beneath which is so not cool after 50. The fit runs slightly large, so if you are between two sizes in J. Crew then opt for the smaller which is ample.

Rated 5 out of 5 by phasiondiva Gorgeous Transition Dress!
The print of this dress is gorgeous! It is a mix of black, white, and a subtle cobalt blue. The picture does not do it justice. This is a must see in person. I'm planning on wearing this year round, with boots and a sweater in the winter and sandals for right now. I think the print is classic enough for year-round wear. Also, as the other reviewer said, the dress does run large at the top. I could get away with size 8 but opted for the 6. It just felt better. I can't wait to try this in the solid color as well!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by cb11 Bulky waist, beautiful print
You can't really see the print well online, but it looks nicer in person. The cobalt and black make it so it's an easy floral to transition through fall. I wear a 4/6 in dresses at jcrew, with a smaller torso than hips, and I definitely needed a 4 in this. I'm 5'8 and it hits just above the knee, and while the straps aren't adjustable, they fit well. My biggest problem with this dress is the waist. It's elastic, but due to the hidden pockets, it's much bulkier than it needs to be, so my waist looks bigger than it is, and it's not as slimming as it could be. It looks great with a navy cropped sweater over it or alone, and could work well past summer, but that bulky waist kills it for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luma The perfect summer dress
When I saw the dress online I eagerly wanted it. I went at my local J.Crew store and tried on. I am size 0, but the perfect fit for me was 00. It is a dream dress for me. The fabric and design are so feminine.I wore it at my friend' s barbecue style wedding. It was the perfect choice on a hot day. Another thing, my husband loves me in that dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShannonG Cute print, but waist is not flattering
The print of this dress is adorable and the top part fits great. The elastic waist is not flattering and makes you look heavier around the midsection.
